  1. “Having fun and engaging customers.”
    That’s the best thing any company can do to try to connect with prospects and fans online. Put down the mega-phone, have fun and just plain ol’ connect as you would when you’re connecting with a friend.

  2. Great list. Reading through it, I couldn’t help but think that a lot of them could ladder up to Conan being genuine – a key part of social media, and often missed by others.

  3. @Ricardo – they are doing so many things right and I was glad Chris focused on what’s happening there, even as we were having fun on Friday.
    @Ben – performers understand how to make a connection with the public. Marketers could use a few lessons.
